Signs and Marquees

Gold paint transforms old sign

This gold-leaf liquid paint sign was the work of 12 hours of labor by a senior citizen in South Carolina. He repaired two areas of wood rot, then hand sanded the dark green background and painted the green with One-Shot sign painters’ enamel. Then he sanded the white edge and back of the sign. He painted that area with One-shot white paint.

Note the detail in the lettering that he accomplished with his two different size brushes. After the gold-leaf paint cured, he protected the bronze-alloy coating with a clearcoat to block the aging process.

Note: Sign done by an artist celebrating his 57th wedding anniversary in 2017.


Project for Grace Lutheran Church may look simple. The scout troop painted a beautiful sign with gold leaf liquid paint. See this blog entry for more details.

For river travelers in Bridgewaters, NY, the Lauren Kristey boasts the use of gold-leaf liquid paint.  The coating accents the design of the paddle wheeler.

See a gold-leaf liquid paint and sewer pipes combo on this blog entry. Looks good.
